WILLS

 
Scale —  Legal Services and Advice in Kiama, NSW
It is important that you have a valid Will as it affords you peace of mind that your Estate will be distributed in accordance with your wishes.

However, to avoid your Will being challenged following your death, it is equally important that you have sound legal advice when making a will, particularly so when considering the complex structure of many families which occur in today's society. Lewis & McKinnon can assist you with practical common sense advice and suggestions designed to ensure that your Will can withstand later challenge.

We can also assist in obtaining Grants of Re-Seal in relation to Probates obtained in other jurisdictions.
 
 

CONTESTED WILLS

 
Black and White Beach —  Legal Services and Advice in Kiama, NSW
Lewis & McKinnon have extensive experience in acting on behalf of Executors appointed under Wills who are facing challenge from dissatisfied family members and others.

We provide prompt, cost effective advice about the prospects of the challenge being successful and advise accordingly whether such claims should be contested or a settlement negotiated on appropriate terms. Thus avoiding the estate unnecessary expense and undue delay in the finalisation of the administration.

If you believe that a Will has not made adequate provision for you, we can advise as to whether or not you are an 'eligible person', that is, a person entitled to bring proceedings, and whether such claim can be successfully maintained.

There is a strict time limit in relation to such claims, so if you believe you have been unfairly treated you should seek proper advice without undue delay.
